The Number One Resource For Cannabis Oil And Medical Marijuana Preparations
Referred to as marijuana, ganja, weed or herb, cannabis is one of the safest medicines available today. There has never been a single recorded fatality from cannabis use in thousands of years of human history. No one has ever died as a direct result of ingesting cannabis or indeed concentrated cannabis oil. One estimate of THC’s lethal dose for humans indicates that roughly 1500 pounds (680 kilograms) of cannabis would have to be smoked within 15 minutes (approx) and studies indicate that the effective dose of THC is at least 1000 times lower than the estimated lethal dose (therapeutic ratio of 1000:1). Heroin has a therapeutic ratio of 6:1, alcohol and valium 10:1. Cocaine 15:1. Aspirin has a therapeutic ratio of 20:1; twenty times the recommended dose (40 tablets) can cause death, and almost certainly induce extensive internal bleeding and serious injury. Drugs used to treat patients with cancer, glaucoma and MS are all known to be highly toxic. The ratio of some drugs used in antineoplastic (cancer treatment) therapies have therapeutic ratios below 1.5:1.
A small percentage of people have negative or allergic reactions to cannabis, particularly concentrated cannabis oil. A few patients experience especially high heart rates and anxieties with cannabis oil. These persons should not use it. Many bronchial asthma sufferers benefit from both herbal cannabis and cannabis oil extracts; however, for some it can serve as an additional irritant, but for the overwhelming majority of people, cannabis has demonstrated literally hundreds of therapeutic uses.
What do you do when you have been constantly told that cannabis is harmful, addictive, dangerous and illegal? Medical cannabis and particularly concentrated cannabis oils are illegal in most countries and therefore the choice comes down to breaking an unjust law or finding a cure, which in the case of cancer sufferers can mean either risking arrest and prosecution or facing a death sentence from the cancer itself.
If you are treating any serious medical condition with cannabis oil then you require a strain that has been specifically bred to contain higher amounts of CBD as well as THC. Amongst other properties CBD is the cannabinoid that is shown to kill cancer cells, particularly breast cancer.
